It’s important for us to address inaccurate and misleading claims that continue to be made regarding Keystone XL and the issue of exports. We’ve addressed the issue of crude oil exports in a previous post. This post deals specifically with the exports of refined products. Will r
MYTH: “Landowners are responsible and liable in the event of an oil spill.” Fact: TransCanada is 100 per cent responsible for responding, cleaning and restoring the site in the unlikely event of a pipeline leak. It’s our responsibility – as a good company and under law. If anything ha

MYTH: Oil sands crude is more corrosive than conventional crude oil. FACT: This myth, invented by oil sands opposition groups without any evidence has been debunked by some of the world’s leading and most respected scientific research organizations including the National Academy of Sc
